Morning Wonketariat! Here’s some of the things we may be talking about today but before we do, DETROIT! We are all up in you at Belle Isle Park “in the open land across from the Giant Slide” they call, “H.” It’s $10 Ameros if you’re driving, but free if you’re take the bus. BRING ALL THE THINGS!

The UK Conservative party led by Prime Minister Theresa May lost its majority in Parliament and she now has to beg for the Queen’s permission to lead the U.K. amid calls for her resignation. (She says she’s sticking around.)

Trump started tweeting this morning, calling James Comey a “leaker.” He sure seems to have an obsessive fetish with the steady stream of leaks that just keep dripping out, doesn’t he?

Comey says the White House lied about him and the FBI, but admitted that he’s certainly not “Captain Courageous” after he failed to stand up to Trump’s super secret one-on-one advances during dimly lit dinners.

Republicans are defending Trump as A Idiot still learning how to swim, and say that any investigations into obstruction of justice are premature because Comey leaked Donald Trump’s lies like he was Nixon.

The House passed a banking deregulation bill, which could mean the death of Dodd-Frank and the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. [Vox Splainer]

The Senate is still toiling away at killing Obamacare, but Senate Republicans are hung up on how to stop all you would-be baby killers from getting tax-payer funded abortions as they try to sneak through TrumpCare/McConnellCare/WealthCare.

The Senate’s TrumpCare/McConnellCare/Wealthcare bill keeps getting hung up on its costs and make-or-break issues, making it increasingly difficult to pass even a Republican majority, despite their smokeless backroom double dealing.

Trump spoke to a bunch of evangelicals about his success at jailing immigrants and railroading Neil Gorsuch onto the SCOTUS.

Ted Cruz was kicked off the stage mid-speech during a meeting of the Faith Freedom Coalition like a bad act at the Apollo. BOO THIS MAN! [VIDEO]

Jerry Falwell Jr. is saying he’s part of a White House higher education task force to reduce regulations in universities. That’s completely different from a Department of Education task force that seems to have left his name off its roster.

Deutsche Bank is giving the finger to Trump-Russia investigators who want to know what kind of money was changing hands between Donald Trump and Russia.

The GOP wants Trey “Benghazi” Gowdy to chair the House Oversight committee just in case Trump-Russia picks up enough weight to start indictments.

Trump has named Valerie Huber chief of staff to the assistant secretary for health at HHS, which is great if you’re one of those people who thinks an abstinence-preaching lobbyist should have a say in “sexual risk avoidance.”

Indiana Republican Rep. Jim Lucas wrote a BookFace post about how not to be a rape victim, and it went over about as well as you’d think.

Hundreds of thousands of teachers are being sent anti-climate changes propaganda from the Heartland Institute, and some of the teachers are righteously pissed.

Former Italian Prime Minister and Italian Donald Trump, Silvio Berlusconi, is trying to make a comeback, but some people aren’t buying his crap this time.

Russia will seize U.S. property used by school children unless it gets its East Coast spy mansions back before the next G20 meeting.

Qatar is throwing up its Middle Eastern middle finger to all its hypocritical neighbors and haters that are closing their borders amid accusations of terror financing.

The Charlotte Pride Parade is denying a Gay Trumpkin from participation in festivities on the grounds that he supports anti-LGBQT policies. His group is called “Deplorable Pride.”

There will be anti-Muslim marches in 30 cities across the country this weekend. So that’s terrible!

A journalist arrested during the inauguration of God Emperor Trump faces 75 years, don’t worry, the millionaire who sexually assaulted a maid gets no jail time.

Dame Peggington Noonington arose from her golden throne, having observed the proclamations of one Mr. James Comey, and thus opined that she hath no interior monologue with which to pen her latest decree, leading one to contemplate that, perhaps, the good lady has consumed too much gin and is thus unworthy of her Pulitzer. [Archive]

Tucker Carlson is full of butthurt that Kurt Eichenwald accidentally tweeted out a picture that suggested he had a fetish for anime tentacle porn.

Breitbart is hemorrhaging advertisers but it probably doesn’t matter seeing as how they’re owned by super-rich hate-mongers (unlike ‘Yr Wonkette, which is owned by Editrix and funded by YOU)!

And here’s your late night wrap-up! Colbert wished everyone a Happy St. Comey’s Day; Conan O’Brien apologized for all those annoying ads; Seth Meyers took A Closer Look at Comey’s testimony; James Corden showed some pictures of doggos at UK polling stations; and The Daily Show wondered what the hell Comey DIDN’T say.

And here’s your morning Nice Time! Peninsular Pronghorn Fawns!

And because you’ve all been so good, BONUS NICE TIME!

If you like the Agendas, and the splainerings, and the sprinkling of dickjokes, and the meet-ups, give us money!

I personally enjoy the thought of chucking annoying people onto explosives they were intending to use on someone else. Very satisfying.

    A bit of nice time – Mrs. Grammarian is a big-time Anglophile who is fascinated by British history. You should have seen her face light up when Comey did the “Will no one rid me of this meddlesome priest?” reference! After the hearing was over, she talked at length about Henry II, while I nodded, secure in the knowledge that I would not have to say anything for quite a while. And then that lawyer guy (Marc somebody?) started spouting nonsense like a virtual diarrhea hose pipe, and Mrs. Grammarian happily pointed his idiocies and then nailed the dismount by noting that he misspelled “Predisent”. Good times!

    • Good_Gawd_Yall

    I must admit that when people in Europe try to pretend the no European country has ever elected anyone as dumb as the current US pres to leadership, I remind them of Berlusconi. They are pretty damned equivalent.

    My other thought yesterday as I was listening to MSNBC – Paul Ryan is saying that the pres is too stupid to break the law. One – ignorance of the law is no defense (happily.) Two – the republicans keep fighting to be able to execute mentally challenged people, so I’m not sure how this is going to help.

      During the foreclosure crisis, Deutsche Bank neglected one home so badly that the agency I worked for took it into receivership, which meant that the court appointed a trustee to oversee the repair and sale of the home. The bank never bothered to show up to the hearing.

  • Alexander Stallwitz

    I have read several books on what caused the finacial crisis. (Too big to fail and Reckless Endangerment are good ones) And it fuckign pisses me off that Trumpy and The Republicans are going to gut Dodd-Frank. It proves that Wall Street didnt learn a god damn thing and or learned the wrong lessons from the bailout. It wasnt “that was a bad idea, lets never do that” , instead it was “If we fucked up, Congress will bail us out” Anyone tells you that too much regulation caused the recession is lying. Wall Street got blinded by greed and without anyone telling them dont do that they couldnt stop until it was too late. You watch if we have a future crisis (God help us) Trump and the Republicans will be to blame.

    These anti-choice people who insist that “abortion is not healthcare” don’t mention that in most states it’s illegal to self-abort. You can give birth home alone in a wading pool in your back yard but you go to jail if you cause your own abortion.

    • Good_Gawd_Yall

      It’s illegal because how would they tie the poor women who can’t afford to travel to a place where abortion is legal to a lifetime of penury otherwise? Those mansions aren’t going to clean themselves.

      • Shanzgood

        I think originally, along with RvW, the laws making it illegal for a non-physician were ostensibly intended to make it safer to have an abortion but now they’re used punitively. They make abortion care harder to access logistically and financially and then when pregnant people have no options but to take matters into their own hands, they’re being prosecuted.

Are they willing to insure that child grows up well fed and well educated. Are they standing in line to adopt? Or are they willing to pay a few more dollars in taxes to insure that child doesn’t grow up in poverty? No. No. No. And HELL NO!
        They don’t believe in a right to life they believe in birth – after that life ends as far as they are concerned.

      They are also reluctant to mention how many health issues, up to and including death can arise out of any given pregnancy…that might imply that women make more of a contribution to bringing children into the world that the sperm guy…can’t have that.

    Off topic: When did the New York Fucking Times start putting annoying autoplay videos on their webpages?

    Sticking to text and still images to report a story was something I liked about them.

    Was there an invisible pole with a hook on the end on that Cruz video? Exit, stage left!

    “The Charlotte Pride Parade is denying a Gay Trumpkin from participation in festivities on the grounds that he supports anti-LGBQT policies. His group is called “Deplorable Pride.””

    Perhaps Deplorable Pride can instead march with the anti-Muslim ACT for America alt-right hate group that’s assembling in Raleigh this weekend. I’m sure they’d welcome gay people with open arms.

    Good for Charlotte Pride.

    Gay people can stll be bigots (although they are thankfully the minority). If a gay person supports Trump, it’s usually because they hate immigrants and/or Muslims. I like to remind them that they wouldn’t have ANY rights at all, including the right to marry, were it not for Democrats fighting for them. What the fuck have Republicans EVER done to defend the rights of the LGBT community?

    Charlotte has a massive immigrant community, many of whom are gay, and I can assure you that we as a city don’t want to see that shit during our awesome parade.

      Muslim rights are human rights.

      Gay rights are human rights.

      You’d think some people would grok this.

      But they don’t.

      In both groups.

    • alpacapunchbowl

      My gay friends call creeps like that “gaycists”. It makes me sad that there are enough of said creeps that they warrant coming with some way to refer to them.

    In all fairness, that Cruz thing looked like a garden-variety SNAFU. The emcee just didn’t realize he wasn’t done.

  • Bitter Scribe

    That Indiana schmuck thinks women should carry guns to ward off rapists. He was replying to an article about a woman who was grabbed off her own front porch. What, women need to be packing heat before they can sit on their own porches?

    • Lori

      A lot of gun humpers basically think everyone should be packing heat at all times.

      • Jim Johnson

        The NRA (gun manufacturer’s trade association) would like us to buy as many guns as possible — to protect their profits.

        • Lori

          Yup. The NRA is a gun manufacturers’ lobby that uses gun owners as human shields.

          • Jim Johnson

            Well said. Gun related deaths are just collateral damage from their marketing “strategies”.

    • phoenix00

      Or maybe the porches need to be packing heat before the women can sit on them.

    Nothing wrong with looking at a bit of hentai. Well, except for the stuff with rape and/or little girls.

    Unrelated, did anyone else google the hentai on Eichenwald’s screen? You know, for science. Heh…me neither.

    • VirginiaLady

      It was easier than asking my weeb teen. Last time I asked about a term she didn’t stop laughing for weeks. I feel so old….

    • Hardly Ideal

      sigh/groan… *Google*

      …hm. Kind of tacky from the looks of the content tags, but then again so is a lot of porn. Otherwise, somewhat pedestrian. I think the banner ads for the the site grossed me out more.

    • Hardly Ideal

      …tangent, if I may?

      I’ve thought about it, and I think I’d defend the drawn stuff. Live-action porn always gave me this nagging feeling that the actors were being coerced or mistreated in some way; you hear horror stories of STDs and getting screwed out of pay, and those disclaimers that everyone involved being legal age always felt suspicious. Of course there’s brands of hentai that make me question people’s sanity, but at least nobody real is getting hurt.

      On top of that, you can indulge crazy crap that’s impractical or impossible; La Blue Girl just looks silly with real actors and rubber tentacles… well, okay, sillier.

    What I find interesting is how many outraged, moralistic prudes knew immediately what that site’s name on Eichenwald’s computer was. Very interesting.
    Isn’t that like Timmy telling the Sunday School teacher that Billy didn’t have his eyes closed during prayer?
